    You wasted some money on that RAM. The motherboard you selected only supports dual channel, not triple channel. In fact, there are only 2 RAM slots on the board.

    Antec 902

    I7 950 3.06 ghz w/ Sharkoon 2000rpm + badass Heatsinc
    6gb trichannel 1600mhz
    EVGA superclocked gtx580
    Corsair 950tx PSU

    Upgraded to:

    Corsair Obsidian 800D
    Gigabyte UD3R
    i7 950 3.06 ghz @ 3.80ghz w/ Corsair H70 watercooled
    6gb trichannel 1600mhz
    EVGA superclocked gtx580
    Corsair 1200Ax PSU - ready for future SLI










    I appologise for bad light levels and not v good 8mp mobile for the photos.

    Hoping by end of month/start of february i can sort the cooling properly and look at new motherboard + a nice 40-60GB OCZ SSD for a boot drive. (step 2)

    then hopefully i can drop the pictures of it finished around april time which will include 2nd GTX580 superclocked courtesy of EVGA and a suitable motherboard to suit

    and yes i know i should of put the cables on the graphics card pic at the bottom through the gromet further to the left but meh! haha

    riZla^
    I'm jealous you have the corsair case,I have the nzxt phantom case, it's a great case and all, but corsair has this nice sleek design that I like a lot!

    Dude go for a 560 or a 570 if you can afford it. I was going to buy a 460 myself, but I waited till I had enough money to get a 570. It was WELL worth it.
